Violent animated tale about tragic pasts has frenzied action.
It's the butterfly effect as comic book apocalypse and it's a dark, brutal animated film.
The film feels unique and vibrant if only for the fact that it's the painfully rare DCAU title that doesn't revolve around Batman, Superman, or a Batman/Superman-led Justice League.
For all its apocalyptic fate-of-the-world theatrics, this...[adaptation of] the 2011 graphic novel Flashpoint by Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert...has an emotional core to give purpose to its crazy amounts of mayhem. [Blu-ray]
Years from now it may be looked at as the animated film that took the direct to video comic book movie market to another level of storytelling possibilities. Yes, it's that good.
Alternative reality stuff as the Flash goes back in time to save his mother from a killer only to unknowingly set off a a host of new but ugly consequences. Not bad, if a little confusing at times. Look for a Wonder Woman sequence wherein she beheads a rival in love. Ouch!
It's nice to see one of the main animated films of the DC canon feature The Flash rather than mostly doing Batman and Superman. He's an interesting character and this film shows exactly what possibilities they have with him storywise. It has a very intriguing alternate universe storyline where Thomas Wayne is a much more violent Batman, Bruce Wayne is dead instead of him, and many other scenarios out of the ordinary. Half the fun is seeing the different versions of the Justice League characters. The DC animated films have been getting progressively darker and this film continues that. Plenty of the action scenes are intense. The animation is well done and the voice acting is spot on. This is one of the better DC animated films I've seen. Being mostly a Batman fan and not much else, that's pretty good praise from me.
Great Animated Movie! This is one of the best Justice League animated films they've produced. The story is great, the animation and action is awesome! Though tagged as a Justice League movie, The Flashpoint Paradox is a Flash movie with the Justice League in supporting roles. Barry Allen is the main character and we really go into his head, deconstruct his personality, and see this twisted new world through his eyes. The writers and talent voice cast lend a good deal of realism to the characters, never over-acting but always keeping it real. They speak like how they would in a live action movie. With the exception of the Dark Knight Returns films, this might be the best animated film they have released to date. It showcases everything in both story and action you could want and then some. They may be slow on the draw to get their live action films moving, but they are winning the war in animation with each getting better and better. While we still have a way to go before getting the live action Justice League movie we have been waiting for, you can at least be happy to know that the next animated film coming up Justice League: War is sure to keep things moving in the right direction.
An alteration of the timeline for the superhero, The Flash, creates ripples that disastrously alters the Universe. The Flash must team with other heroes to restore the timeline while the Earth is ravaged by a war between Aquaman's Atlantis and Wonder Woman's Amazons.
A really great movie, incredibly well animated, voiced and directed! Seriously, the stylization, lighting and cinematography is probably the best work I've seen from DC.
Although it feels like the film's in a bit of a hurry (Not a Flash pun) and at times it almost feels like there's too much gore/violence. Like they're going out of their way to be all dark and edgy?
Also it's hard not to have laugh a bit at the plot, the world coming to an end because Aquaman couldn't keep it in his pants? Hahaha.
